The Clinical Emergency Rotation (ER) protocol differs from the Main Clinic Floor Protocol because there are procedures and codes specific to emergent treatment. Figure 1 illustrates the Faculty and Student Protocol, which details the 11 steps and codes most commonly used in providing emergency treatment. To provide consistent instruction to students, it is critical for the 10 ER faculty members to be calibrated. Faculty calibration is also 1 of the CODA accreditation standards.1

The traditional approach of scheduling 1 presentation for all faculty cannot be accomplished because 9 are part‐time faculty with different schedules. In the past, multiple repeated calibration sessions were offered to individual faculty, which was labor‐ and time‐intensive. Therefore, a more flexible approach to faculty calibration was needed.
